Default Game-to-Game Evaluations/Thoughts/Comments

So I'm looking at the Suns' schedule to see when we get to go up against a team that's above average...

We have the Magic on Wednesday, the Celts on Friday, And the Hornets and the Lakers next week.

What're your thoughts on each of these teams and how do you predict the Suns will fare?

I'm particularly excited to see Amar'e/Dwight. Amar'e/KG, Nash/Paul,

And of course...I would LOVE it if we whupped the Lakers. Although maybe that's hoping for a lot.

Phoenix vs. LA is always good to see but i think the Lakers got to much for the Suns to pick up a win, then again LA loss to Dallas, who also runs n' guns!

I hope Pau is still out when we play them. The window of hope will be bigger. Bynum is a young guy, and Amar'e could possibly out-experience him, at least on offense. With Pau back though, it would be hard because it's too much down low for us to be able to handle. The team will very likely be fired up to play the Lakers, but they're going to have to be on FIRE from the 3, hitting every pick and roll and rebounding decently to be able to win.

Hopefully we stay close and not get blown out. =/ Cant really ask for more. Though it's bound to happen. No team is perfect.

i'd rather we lose against the lakers w/ gasol playing than win against the lakers w/o gasol playing. i want to see how well the suns match against a healthy lakers.
